Spider-Man Invites

As I wrote yesterday that you can read about here, I planned my sons 3rd birthday party around Spider-Man.  These are the invites I created that were so easy to make!

Supplies Needed:

Card Stock: Real Red (4-1/4 x 5-1/2), Basic Black (scrap for punching) and Whisper White (scrap for punching and 4 x 5-1/4 for inside)

Stamp Set: Retired that I can't even remember the name but saved just for these occasions.

Ink: Basic Black and Pacific Point

Accessories: Big Shot
                     Ovals Collection Framelits Dies
                     Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
                     Bird Punch
                     Paper Snips

Directions to make the Spider Man front: Fold Real Red card stock in half so the fold is at the top.  When you run it through the Big Shot you will want to have some of the folded card stock over the edge of the framelit.  This will allow the card stock to be cut and still be folded together.  Check out this picture tutorial here.

Next, use the Spider web folder and run it through the Big Shot.  *Be sure the raised side of the Spider Web will be on the outside of the card front.*  Use the Basic Black pad to ink the raised side of the card by just rubbing it over the card.  (Make sure to cover your work surface before doing this step because it is messy.)

Using the Bird Punch, punch out the bird in Basic Black twice and the wing twice with Whisper White.  Glue the punches like this.
Now to make Spider-Man's eyes you will want to cut off the birds heads and tails using the Whisper White wing as your guide.  (This step sounds so mean to these cute little birds)
The inside is just Whisper White run with the smaller size oval from the Framelit through the Big Shot and stamping with the "You're Invited" stamp.
These cards will fit in to our Medium envelopes measuring 5 3/4" x 4-3/8" that allow normal postage!
